GST Registration Amendment --
GST is the tax reform everyone has been waiting for, for years. It finally rolled out on the 1st of July, 2017 at the stroke of midnight hour. With implementation of GST all other indirect taxes like, Service tax, VAT, CST, entry tax, excise etc. have been repealed. Now there is only one indirect tax for the whole of India and every state including Jammu and Kashmir has to follow it. He provisions as well as tax rates are similar throughout the country. Learn here to GST Registration Amendment.
Any taxpayer having VAT, Service Tax or any other indirect tax registration must mandatorily migrate to GST and obtain GST registration. Every other person who has an annual turnover of more than ₹20 lacs (₹10 pacs in some cases) will have to compulsorily get GST registration. Post registration there are various details that require amendment like, change of address, business ownership, name, contact details etc. Moreover, it is completely natural for the applicant to miss out on some details while registering with GST.
